Only 11 days until I'm off to start a new chapter of my life in USA with my lovely fiance Tom. So excited that it's really happening now after such a long wait, but saying farewell to family and friends is very very difficult. I know I'll be home for holidays and I hope that lots of folk will come and visit us in Carbondale, but it's still painful doing so many things for the 'last time'!
I'm lucky that my two sons are travelling out with me on Monday 26 July for their first ever holiday in the States, and I hope not their last!
Our wee kitten Mango has settled in so well with Tom, and I watch him on webcam every night. I've been looking at Animal Rescue places near Carbondale and thinking I could maybe volunteer some of my time there until I get a Green Card so I can earn some money again! The only thing is ~ can I resist taking all the wee kittens home with me if they're not re-homed with new families!!??
I've knitted socks for Jeneece and am working on a crochet gift for Joanna to take with me. I thought I would have loads of time to crochet when I stopped work, but days have been busy and somehow the time flies by!
